“Why can’t this be possible?” Lei Yu pursed his lips. “You actually didn’t know about this after cooperating with Dr. Tony for so long? Now that is something that’s unbelievable. You should know that once Dr. Tony makes his move, then the consequences would be unthinkable.” Lei Yu never mentioned the strange occurrence. It was better this way since it maintained an air of mystery and made the Pope feel like he couldn’t see through Lei Yu.
The Pope was lost in thought. Although he was shocked by Lei Yu’s words, he still chose to believe it because Lei Yu had no need to falsify this.
“Your holiness, how do you plan on dealing with this current situation?” Lei Yu asked.
The Pope nodded, “The Dark Council currently isn’t too much of a threat to us because their hidden strongest expert Primus Hogue hasn’t appeared yet.”
Lei Yu had a strange look on his face as he shook his head, “It’s unfortunate that because of you and I, your faithful believers paid the price with their lives.”
“God will remember what they’ve done for the Vatican, and their souls will receive the best treatment in heaven.” The Pope made a fake benevolent expression that disgusted Lei Yu.
“Okay, let’s not talk about this and talk about your plans instead.” Lei Yu interrupted the Pope’s pious appearance.
“Your return has significantly increased our strength. There’s no longer any need for us to guard this place so we can just rush out and cleanse all these evil creatures. This is the quickest and easiest solution.”
Lei Yu thought this would work as well, taking the initiative was better than sitting here and waiting.
Just as the two discussed the issues and made some consensus, an explosion came from somewhere in the estate grounds. The explosion was quite a distance away but even Ai Er, an ordinary person heard it clearly.
Following this, everyone rushed out together. Lei Yu asked: “What was that?”
Looking off into the distance, a dark cloud with a height of at least five meters was seen. And a huge gap in the walls had been blown open to the estate. The guards that wanted to rush forth towards the cloud started screaming as their bodies began to shrivel up. It appears as if their blood had been completely drained and their death was extremely gruesome.
“Primus Hogue!” The Pope’s face became pale while Lei Yu was in complete shock. This was the Dark Council’s most powerful existence, a supreme expert that had already surpassed the strength of a Sixth Order Warrior!
The sudden appearance of this fearsome individual made the Pope without a choice. He anxiously looked over at Lei Yu who expressed his understanding. The two simultaneously brought out the scroll from inside their storage ring, an item that Lei Yu had always thought it was only used to open the Crete’s Labyrinth.
The scroll gave off a mysterious aura. Once it appeared, Primus Hogue’s voice was heard from a distance that made everyone in the area clearly hear it.
“Little child of the Vatican and your little friend Lei Yu, what are you up to? Do you want to release the arcane arts of the scroll?”
The Pope’s eyes widened. “You… how did you know?”
“What of it? Surprised? Didn’t the previous generation’s Pope tell you…? Then let me, tell YOU!” Similar to teleporting and less than a count of breath, this black cloud had instantly appeared in front of Lei Yu, the Pope and others allowing everyone to see what Primus Hogue looked like.
Primus Hogue wasn’t as tall as he looked from a distance; he was only about 1.6 meters tall (5ft 2in). His entire being was covered in a dark energy making him looking majestic and domineering.
His face was pale as if blood didn’t flow to it. His lips and his fingernails were black, similar to someone that had been poisoned. The most terrifying feature was his eyes; amongst the white of his eye were pupils the size of a pinprick which meant it was barely visible. His gaze was hollow as if he was looking at bodies that were as good as dead.
His sudden arrival hadn’t given Lei Yu and the Pope any time to react. The Vampire Prince Bel’s strongest ability of teleportation was still a ways off compared to this. Primus Hogue had displayed this ability with such ease.
Panic-stricken, the mantra the Pope was chanting had suddenly stopped half-way. This made Primus Hogue smile in disdain. At the same time, Lei Yu pushed Ai Er behind him. The Holy Knights then rushed in front of the Pope and Lei Yu. As for Black Panther and the rest, they stood on both sides of Lei Yu with their fighting stances ready.
“Such a big lineup but unfortunately for you guys, you’re dealing with me! You guys will forever disappear from this world!” Primus Hogue wasn’t just all talk, he actually started waving his hand and a dark aura blew over. The moment this dark aura came into contact with the Holy Knights standing in the forefront, their bodies started festering and giving off a foul smell. Eighteen Holy Knights, eighteen experts who had reached the strength of a Fifth Order Warrior had instantly lost their life. Was this the ability of a supreme expert that has surpassed the power of a Sixth Order Warrior? Nope, it’s not only this because Primus Hogue had merely waved his hand this time.
“A hundred years ago, I was trapped by the scroll’s arcane arts by Kalchas and the last generation’s Pope. It was only these recent years that I had finally broken out of it. Now you guys want to use the same method to deal with me? Impossible!” Primus Hogue who only had a height of 1.6 meters suddenly stared hard, and the two scrolls in the Pope’s hand started burning before disappearing without leaving any ashes behind.
Lei Yu and the Pope simultaneously took a few steps back. Even though Primus Hogue had made two simple moves, one of them made the Vatican lose eighteen experts and the second made Lei Yu and group lose the treasure that was supposed to deal with him.
Lei Yu was currently overawed at Primus Hogue’s presence because he couldn’t detect any life coming from him. It was like Primus Hogue didn’t exist yet here he was, in front of everyone so it couldn’t be fake. The other party’s powerful strength made Lei Yu’s ability to probe absolutely useless.
“You…! What do you want?! God will be clearly watching your evil ways and you will suffer his punishment!” The Pope said in a panic.
At this point, the Pope had become a leader without any followers. The death of the eighteen Holy Knights had caused a heavy loss for the Vatican.
“Punishment? In this world, no one has ever dared to mention that word to me!” The momentum of Primus Hogue was too compelling. Even if Lei Yu and company wanted to attack, they weren’t able to because the pressure he exerted was too great.
Lei Yu was secretly surprised in his heart at how weak he was. When he faced a true expert, the chance of him escaping was equal to zero. If he was able to get out of this crisis, he had to increase! Increase! He had to increase his powers!
“The grudge between the Vatican and my Dark Council isn’t something recent so we can put that aside for now. As for this little child Lei Yu, having such strength at this young age truly makes him a rarely seen genius!” Primus Hogue then started shaking his head. “It’s too bad you made a mistake and killed a Senator of my Dark Council. We all know that you have to pay the price when making a mistake, so there’s no need to debate the issue!”
Unknown where the courage came from, Lei Yu loudly replied: “If I didn’t kill him, was I supposed to let him kill me? Was I born to let you guys kill me? What a joke!”
“Humph!” Primus Hogue suddenly stared hard, and Lei Yu’s body instantly froze. Lei Yu felt that he was unable to breathe while his face became flushed and the veins on his neck started popping out. It was quite horrific to see what Lei Yu looked like right now.
